Well its been 4 months I have been in Bangalore and its still babes-galore. Settling in slowly and learnt a few local words in the local dialect. Work is also getting hectic and I am getting some responsible work and that feels good. Atlhough I generally have to work till 8pm , I am yet to get bored by the free noodles, pool and super fast net connection. Completed 4 corporate trainings and its going to take a lot to persuade me to take another. Every month I manage to get atleast 2 books from landmark after long browsing sessions and finish them inspite of the erratic work timings. My upcoming assignments are all hard core coding so things should look better in a few days. Visited Ooty/kunoor and it was ok.period. Mom sometimes scares me with her "get married" speak and new evasive plans have to be devised. Friends in PhD sometimes really make me wonder what I should do but I am postponing any decisions for a few more months. Saturday tennis sessions are a great timepass.

Yesterday it was pure serendipity as I went to a restaurant in bangalore where I would normally not go ( yes a bit on the expensive side too) since it was quite far from the place where I stay and more so when its a weekend when traffic has this amazing effect on time which is stretched amidst the congested cacophonic streets riddled with frantic people trying to make the most of the remaining Sunday before they lose touch with the worlds for 5 days
. Well I was speaking of an uncanny event since I think I saw a friend whom I had last seen 6-7 years back and that too in my hometown which is definitely not even in South india and since she also glanced at me I think I was right because I am not exactly the babe-magnet who gets the look at public places. But I am so embarrassed to admit that i could not go over and just speak to her. Maybe it was because I thought she recognised me and could have come over and spoken since I was not with a date while she was , or maybe because I was not sure………whatever the reason I just want to have the mathematical odds defined that could make such an unlikely incident take place. Hobbes has such a good explanation for some things.

http://www.thejemreport.com/mambo/content/view/123/42/ A good article that discusses the issue of pronunciations in the realm of Open Source which has bugged me for quite some time now. When pronunciation becomes a peer prestige factor then its not something which you are mistaking as important, it surely is relevant(ofcourse not in the larger cosmic sense).
